We have been going to Madlon's for many years, whenever we go to Big Bear. I am writing this review mainly because I can't believe Madlon's is not ranked in the top 5 in Big Bear. The current owners are open for breakfast on weekends but don't seem to be doing the business of many other area restaurants. You definitely should try it. On our last visit for breakfast I had the "breakfast combo" with eggs, choice of potatoes, two nice-sized pieces of ham (bacon or sausage available), and 1/2 waffle (pancake also available) for $7. And everything was delicious! My wife chose from the LONG list of crepes and commented on their lightness and flavor. The service is excellent, if occasionally a bit slow. I have never had lunch at Madlon's, but the dinner menu, while not extensive, is excellent. The food is creative and delicious and fairly priced. The only item I thought was expensive was a steak I had a couple years ago, but it was the best steak I have ever had. The wine selection is very good, with relatively low prices. To really save, try their early specials on weeknights. (I am not sure of the days; call ahead to check.) Madlon's is a clean, cute place with outstanding food.
